Felix van Groeningen‘s film starring Academy Award®️-nominees Steve CarellTimothée Chalamet, and Amy Ryan received its world premiere this past weekend at the Toronto Film Festival where Owen Gleiberman of Variety raved “Carell and Chalamet both give excellent performances that should help to launch Beautiful Boy into the awards-buzz atmosphere.
Join us for Opening Night on Wednesday, October 10. A VIP After-Party with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will follow at the beautiful St. Jane Hotel!
“We are excited to open our festival with such a powerful film. Director Felix van Groeningen brings his trademark nuance and sensitivity, coupled with his stylistic rigor, to this commanding English language debut.” said Mimi Plauché, the Festival’s Artistic Director

Based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. Starring Steve Carell and rising young star Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), who delivers one of the year’s most stunning performances, this emotional drama remains full of hope and humanity.

“Timothée Chalamet delivers another powerful performance as Nic Sheff, one that is a testament to his incredible range. I have no doubt that he will take home the top awards for his performance across the board,” said Festival Founder and CEO Michael Kutza.

Tickets start at $25 with VIP tickets (including film and after-party) at $100/ticket. Ticket and event information is available on our website. Stay up to date at our Facebook event page.
